AAA International League: Buffalo 7/12/3, Louisville 20/24/1 (yikes)

The good news? The Bisons beat up on Aroldis Chapman today. The bad news? Louisville beat the snot out of every pitcher the Bisons sent out there, sans Bobby Parnell. The Bisons offense had 12 hits and a walk, while going 5 for 11 (.455) with RISP, leaving 7 on base and striking out 11 times. Jesus Feliciano, Chris Carter and Omir Santos had multi hit games, while Fernando took the only 0-fer.

lf Jesus Feliciano 2 for 5, 2b, K, .362
3b Andy Green 1 for 5, RBI, 2 Ks, .370
cf Fernando Martinez 0 for 4, run, 2 Ks, .239
1b Mike Hessman 1 for 5, 2b, 2 Ks, .297
rf Chris Carter 3 for 4, 3 runs, BB, .348.

I’d like to tell you a story, this is a story of how much Frank Catalanotto freaking sucks, doesn’t deserve to be in the majors, let alone on the Mets, and how much Chris Carter does not suck, and does deserve to be in the majors, and on the Mets. It’s a story of how much our bench stinks because Catalanotto is on the bench, because GMJ, who is even more useless is on the bench, a useless DP machine is on the bench, and the King of Nice is also on the bench. The moral of this story is DELETE THE DEAD WOOD, RID YOURSELF OF RUBBISH, THROW OUT THE TRASH. Catalanotto, GMJ, Cora, Tatis out —–> Carter, Pridie, Russ Adams, Evans in. Thank you.

AA Eastern League: Binghamton 7/13/1, Erie 5/11/1 in 10 innings

Eddie Kunz had a very odd outing today, he went 6 innings, his deepest outing since high school, and walked only 1, but recorded only 1 groundout versus 9 flyouts, a very un-Kunz like line. Still, he pitched very well, giving up just 6 hits and 2 runs (1 earned), taking a ND. Josh Stinson and Clint Everts blew saves in this game, Everts picked up the vulture win.

The Mets offense had 13 hits and 3 walks, while going 2 for 10 with RISP, leaving 8 on, and striking out 5 times. Lucas Duda, Carlos Guzman and Mike Nickeas had multi hit games, while Luis Hernandez (0 for 5, K, .323) took the only 0-fer.

A+ Florida State League: St. Lucie 6/9/0, St. Lucie 3/9/0

Some shoddy defense and a terrible home plate ump, along with continued very uncharacteristic wildness doomed Kyle Allen tonight, as he allowed 6 runs on 6 hits and 4 walks in 4.2 innings. Angel Cuan made his high A debut tonight and was excellent, pitching 3.1 scoreless innings in long relief. The Mets offense had 9 hits and 2 walks, but were hitless in 7 ABs with RISP, left 7 on base and struck out 14 times. Reese Havens, Eric Campbell and Sean Ratliff had multi hit games, while Emmanuel Garcia (0 for 4, 4 Ks, .234), Richard Lucas and Luis Nieves (0 for 3, .160) took 0-fers.

A South Atlantic League: Savannah 1/6/1, Delmarva 2/10/4

Darin Gorski blew the save for the Gnats, allowing a run in the 8th, but then pitched another 1.1 scoreless innings, before Brandon Sage came in and allowed a run in the bottom of the 13th to lose it for Savannah, 2-1. Jefry Marte had the only hit for the Gnats, who only had 6 hits and 3 walks overall, while going 3 for 11 (.273) with RISP, leaving 9 on base, and striking out 11 times. Juan Lagares, Kai Gronauer, Cesar Puello and Jeff Flagg (0 for 5, 3 Ks, .173) took 0-fers.
